WORKSHOP AT HAMILTON

If you are interested in printing a big block at the Really Big Prints! event and want to work with others in a class setting this is a great workshop for you! We will be discussing image making, tools & materials, carving strategies, and more! Each student will need to provide their own printing block and tools to participate. The class will address the special considerations, concepts, and processes of making a large print and will lead to a matrix that can be printed at Really Big Prints! 2023. We will be proofing (test-printing) your blocks as part of this workshop. There will be time outside of class to work on your blocks at the museum.

The selected artist will be reimbursed up to $500 in costs related to preparing for and participating in the event.  

All are welcome to apply. Artists who wish to be considered for the scholarship should share a short statement (100-200 words) discussing their identity as an underrepresented artist and what participating Really Big Prints might mean to them.
